Well done docu-drama..., 7 September 2001
Author: dwpollar from Evansville, Indiana USA

1st watched 9/7/2001 - 7 out of 10(Dir-Kay Pavlou): Well done docu-drama on the life of the 1st saint crowned from Australia by the Catholic church. This story is very compelling and keeps you interested. This "Mary" was very rebellious to the local church authorities, so much so that she was excommunicated once, and sent away by the Father another time, but in the end was recognized as a Saint. It's amazing how people who are looked at as very little in their life by some can become so immortalized when their life is examined more closely. This is basically what happened to her. The documentary footage is of those who knew her as well as those who examined her life and ultimately was involved in making the decision to vote her in as a saint(Titled - a Saintmaker). The footage on the process was not near as compelling as the actual life of this woman, but fortunately the focus was not on the former but more on the later. The parts were also well-played in the dramatic part of the movie which gave the film an almost two movies in one feel. This movie is a rare find, if you can track it down - watch it.
